Bright Stars is a community based registered non-profit organisation (NPO) located in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town (Kraaifontein).
We provide shelter and a caring family environment for children from the poorer local communities whose welfare or safety has been compromised as a result of parental drug abuse / alcohol abuse / HIV status.
Brenda Jooste, our Principal Carer has many years of experience in this field, working for church based organisations providing residential care and support for children in need. She identified a desperate need in the local community for more places of safety and care, and founded Bright Stars in 2011.
The Department of Housing provided a municipal house to accommodate the children. The Department of Welfare has limited resources, social grants when available are pitifully small. We therefore rely on the generosity of sponsors to support our projects and day to day requirements.
Every kindness no matter how small, makes a difference!
